Pasta with Brussel Sprouts and Feta

Pasta with Brussel Sprouts and Feta

There's not much time for blogging in the whirlwind of pre-Christmas activities. So here's just a quick seasonal, vegetarian dish which could easily be improved with a little bacon. All the measurements given below are only approximate. Feel free to adjust as needed. :)


Pasta with Brussel Sprouts and Feta

Source: Pasta meets Rosenkohl at Kochfrosch
Original Source: Brussel Sprouts with Feta and Pine Nuts at Anne's Food

Ingredients (for one generous portion)

125 g pasta
90 g feta
2 cups brussel sprouts
1 red onion
3 Tbsp pine nuts


Method

Trim away the woody end and the outer leaves pf the sprouts and cut in half. (Next time I will quarter those, for easier eating with a spoon.) Blanche for about five minutes in salt water. Drain and rinse under the tap. Roast the pine nuts in a dry pan until they take on some colour and set aside. Dice the feta, cut onion rings.

Set up the water for the pasta and cook until al dente. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan and fry the sprouts until they turn brown on their sides. Add the onion and continue to fry on low-medium heat. Just before you drain the pasta, add the feta and pine nuts. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add pasta into the pan and fold in.
